Ah, thanks for the clarification, Stephen. I'll make sure I point out
the discrepancies when I next perform it. I'm surprised I haven't heard

but have never pointed out the nits. :)

Thanks for listening and for having a good sense of humor. Btw, I first
heard it on an anthology of pieces made by members of a bbs that focused
on vintage analog synths. I kid you not.
